After a Final Agreement, a process for the start-up of the NStQ Treaty will be developed. A committee of NStQ, BC and Canada will be established to create procedures and operating guidelines and develop a communications strategy regarding the implementation and content of the Final Agreement. This committee will be in effect for 10 years but that period may be extended if necessary.
A start-up plan will be created that identifies all of the obligations in the Final Agreement, the work that needs to be done to fulfill those obligations, who is responsible to complete that work, and the timeframes involved. The governments will be providing very significant funding for NStQ to cover training, capacity-building and governance start-up costs.
